Sony today launched the new MASTER Series A9G 4K HDR OLED televisions in India. The MASTER Series represents the pinnacle of picture quality and is a name given to only the very best Sony TVs which provide exceptional colour, contrast, and clarity to the level of a professional-grade monitor.

The Master Series A9G is Sony’s new flagship 4K HDR OLED TV available in 139 cm (55) and 164 cm (65) in a very slim form factor. The Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate controls over 8 million self-illuminating pixels, also the A9G has Pixel Contrast Booster for more colour and contrast in bright areas. This processor also scales up SD (Standard Definition) and HD (High Definition) content to near 4K picture quality.

In terms of sound, the A9G BRAVIA OLED TV reproduces the position of the sound on the screen so when actors are speaking, the sound appears to be coming directly from them and not from a speaker at the bottom of the screen. Acoustic Surface Audio+ with two actuators and two powerful subwoofers deliver multi-dimensional immersive sound for the ultimate audio-visual entertainment experience. In addition, a TV Centre Speaker Mode provides a choice to use the TV as the centre speaker when utilizing a home theatre system to unleash an immersive cinematic experience. 

For the ultimate in picture quality, the A9G pairs the brilliance of 4K clarity with the brightness, colour, and detail of High Dynamic Range (HDR). It features a picture mode specially developed to enjoy Netflix originals called the NETFLIX Calibrated Mode. This lets the TV reproduce the same picture quality on the TV as the creators intended. With Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, viewers can experience content in a whole new immersive way. The TV also comes with eARC HDMI input to connect and enjoy Dolby Atmos content on supported audio devices.

The A9G BRAVIA OLED TV comes with a slimmer, more rounded design with built-in voice control microphone and enhanced button layout for an even more user-friendly experience. It connects the set-top boxes and other devices via HDMI to the TV. Users can control them all using one smart remote. The smart remote is based on RF so users can control the TV without pointing the remote.

The A9G BRAVIA OLED is powered by Android, supporting a huge range of apps from Google Play, including YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Video, Hotstar, ALT Balaji, Zee5, Sony LIV and more for deep smart home integration. It also has Google Assistant built-in. The built-in microphones on the TV will allow viewers to have a truly hands-free experience. The A9G BRAVIA OLD TV also supports popular smart speakers like Google Home or Amazon Echo, which allow viewers to control the TV and stream content on it just by asking smart speakers. It is compatible with Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. AirPlay 2 lets users stream content from iPhone, iPad and Mac right to the A9G BRAVIA OLED TV whereas HomeKit lets users easily and securely control smart home products using the Home app or by asking Siri on Apple devices.

The A9G is very slim and fits as close as a picture and blends effortlessly on to the walls. It is designed in such a way that it looks like it’s floating on the wall. To bring the best viewing position and flexible usage, this new wall mount has a swivel functionality and the premium wall mounting system will come at no extra cost to the customers.

Along with the BRAVIA OLED 4K TV range, there is the A8G series available in 65-inch and 55-inch screen sizes. 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme provides the ultimate 4K HDR viewing experience by incorporating technologies like Object-based HDR remaster, Super Bit Mapping, 4K HDR and Dual database processing. The TV also supports Acoustic Surface Audio which enables the entire screen to resonate with great sound emanating directly from the screen itself. The newly launched models will be available across all Sony Centers, major electronic stores and e-commerce portals in India. Pricing and availability details are added below.
